Frequent Nose Bleed

My 5 years old son is having frequent nose bleed for last one month. Though the amount of blood is quite less but the onset can be as frequent as twice a day. We consulted ENT doctor about 15 days back and he suggested its anterior and suggested paraffin drops along with Saline. This reduced the frequency but not entirely cured the problem. For last few days the frequency has again increased. He is taking Oleptal DT 150 twice a day for childhood epilepsy. Do we need to have it checked again? Thanks

Most common cause for childhood nasal bleeds is septal erosion due to frequent nose picking. Take a second opinion and get few blood tests related to blood coagulation only if doctor suggests. Meanwhile make sure child's nails are trimmed and picking is completely avoided
